  1. Hi Triad, Why were you reluctant to post that nice Godet bar? Addressing your core question for this thread, I think that the occurrence during the period was common. Apart from wearer preference, the occasion, location of the event and other attendees might have dictated what bar was worn. It would have been unwieldy to wear long bars outside of the most stiff functions, so well-decorated recipients would have often had variants of their bars - at the very least, previous versions of bars as their awards and bars grew. Jewelers of the time would have tried to up-sell their customers as much as possible too, so having multiple examples of the same bar and/or variations of the same bar would have been a goal. J-
  2. Hi Claudio, Yes, the uniform looks like a tropical tan configuration. Best regards, Jason
  3. That is a very nice oil portrait, the artist was skilled. Without commenting on the ID itself - those who have contributed thus far are supremely knowledgeable on the subject - just because an award was earned doesn’t mean it was always worn, or worn for every occasion. And besides, the portrait cuts off just below the bottom of the pocket anyway. It could have easily been worn below that if/when worn. Thanks for sharing the portrait! J-
  4. Nicolas, Utgard, and Claudio - thank you so much for your kind words! 😃 Claudius - correct. I’ll try and post others under their respective sections when time permits. J-
  5. I collect Air Force ribbon bars. Here are some with Saxon decorations. The identified bars from top to bottom are: 1. Oberstleutnant Curt Treitschke 2. Oberstleutnant Rudolf Beltz 3. Generalleutnant Erwin von Romer 4. Oberst Claus Groth 6. Oberst Erich Poser 7. Generalmajor Wilhelm Merz 9. Generalmajor Hans von Weech 10. Major Willy Runge 12. Ministerialdirigent Hugo Geyer 13. Major Walther Stresemann J-
  6. Agreed. I don't pick these up either, likely for similar reasons. But this is a very nice one, Nicolas. Well done and great score to supplement your collection! 😃 J-
  7. I love it; such a unique piece. Would be happy to own that and I only collect longer Luftwaffe ribbon bars! Just goes to show you how much I love It. 😃 J-
  8. A very nice bar and probably unique, ID or not. Just a very interesting combination with some rare awards. Great pick up! J-
  9. Where it was worn on the tunic varied based on wearer preference when it comes to vertical positioning. While I’m not intimately familiar with these awards, the pins can’t all have been the same. Just because it doesn’t fit one maker of a particular badge doesn’t mean it wouldn’t fit another. J-
  10. Dear Claudio, Another stunning piece! You have such great taste, and a definite style in what you acquire. I could probably review a catalog and correctly guess your next piece! 😃 Congratulations, my friend. A beautiful bar on so many levels. Best, Jason
